Brookside (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Stats - Jan 2018

It's the beginning of a new year and home buyers are out, ready to see fresh inventory in the housing market.  2017 was a strong year for Brookside home sales--median prices were up 10.2% over 2016.  Let's see what the market did last month--I'm using the Brookside zip code of 64113 to check single family home sales.

January 2018                                                                    January 2017

Median list price:     $429,450                                       Median list price:     $395,000

Median sales price:  $416,250                                       Median sales price:  $388,500

Days on market:           37                                               Days on market:             36

No. of homes sold:        17                                               No. of homes sold:         13

 

The 2018 median sales price was far ahead of 2017; however more expensive homes sold last month--highest sale was $1.6 million and lowest was $185,000.

Because January is the first month of the year to track stats, there are no YTD comparisons yet...those figures will be reported next month.

Currently there are 25 active listings in the Brookside zip code of 64113, with a median price of $615,000.  Just five of those homes are priced under $350K; six are listed at over $1 million.
